Ye Lianping smiles with a paper folding gift given by left-behind children in the classroom of the "home for left-behind children" in Buchen Village of Hexian County, east China's Anhui Province, July 31, 2019. Ye Lianping, a 92-year-old retired teacher in Buchen Village of Hexian County, set up the "home for left-behind children" in 2000 to teach them English lessons for free. As most of the young people work far away, elders and children are left behind in the village. Having no child himself, Ye lives with his wife in a shanty house built 30 years ago, where he offers those children who live far away with food and living spaces. In the past 19 years, Ye has helped more than 1,000 children on his own. Moved by his deeds, volunteers across the country have come to support him in recent years, and he has also received many honors and awards. However, Ye's will is to run against time to take care of more left-behind children. A collection of heartwarming moments in 2019 by Xinhua photographers. (Xinhua/Liu Junxi)
